Democratic Debate in South Carolina

(CNN)If you missed Tuesday night’s South Carolina presidential debate, I can sum it up in just two words: LOUD NOISES.For extended periods of time during the two-hour debate, candidates sought to talk over one another, land opposition research hits and create zingers that they could then use to raise money for campaigns rapidly running out of it.It made for an absolutely terrible debate — to watch and to participate in.

Bernie Sanders’ disastrous answer on ’60 Minutes’ – CNNPolitics

Bernie Sanders, the clear front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, was asked over the weekend how much his various plans would cost if implemented. He didn’t know.

“Experts estimate that Sanders’ major proposals would cost a staggering $60 trillion and would double the size of the government (while his tax plans fall $27 trillion short of paying for it). There’s a reason that, when pressed on the cost of his plans, Sanders simply refuses to answer, saying he actually has no idea and ‘no one does.'”
That $60 trillion number comes from The Atlantic’s Ron Brownstein, a CNN contributor, who broke down the costs of Sanders’ proposals like “Medicare for All,” the “Green New Deal” and free tuition at public colleges and arrived at that stunning price tag.
Just how big a number is that? This, from Brownstein, puts the $60 trillion in spending proposals in very clear context:
“The Vermont independent’s agenda represents an expansion of government’s cost and size unprecedented since World War II, according to estimates from his own website and projections by a wide variety of fiscal experts.
